We have tried various brands of frozen oatmeal and they are pretty good, quick to make and pretty pricy. I figured I would give a DIY version a whack and see how it tasted…..WOW – it is good and so inexpensive to make. I figure 12 quick breakfasts cost us $1.50. That is about .12 cents a serving. Eddie loves them and it is just enough food to get him going. We have been considering 1 frozen disk a serving – of course you could use two disks for a bigger bowl.
We used Old Fashion Rolled Oats from Fresh and Easy. Next time I am going to make steel cut oatmeal. We cooked as per the package instructions.
Top off the cups, cover with cling wrap and place in freezer until the cups are frozen solid.
Pop the frozen oatmeal from the cups and place in a zip-top baggie for storage.
Place a frozen oatmeal disk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and stir. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Top with milk, fruit, etc. and ENJOY!
